Compiling glibc-2.1.1 on a glibc-2.2.4 system for building compatible binaries
Wed, 31 Oct 2001 10:42:29 +0000
I'm building a binary version of an executable that I would like to
run on a glibc-2.1.1 system, and my system (Mandrake Linux 8.1) has
glibc-2.2.4 installed. (In case you're interested, the executable is
a commercial game Docking Station http://ds.creatures.net).
The program uses fnmatch, so the symbol versioning of glibc prevents
it from working. To fix this, I'm trying to compile glibc-2.1.1 on my
system, so I can link against that.
I get the following error while compiling glibc-2.1.1:
gcc -nostdlib -nostartfiles -shared -o
/usr/bin/ld: unable to find version dependency `GLIBC_2.1'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
This error doesn't make any sense to me. I would be grateful of any
help either with this error message, or in general as to how I should
approach building a binary which will work with an older version of
Thanks for any help,
